Survive and Thrive: Retaining Talent In Times of Change

With the cost of turnover for highly skilled employees at an estimated 150% to 200% of their annual salary, can you afford not to focus on retaining your best and brightest? Survey data consistently shows the strong correlation between employee engagement and lower turnover. One often over-looked factor that has a huge impact on engagement is change itself— and more specifically, how well it’s managed in the workplace. Not only does poorly managed change result in big losses in productivity, damaged morale and lower quality, it may be responsible for good employees disengaging and deciding to take their talents elsewhere. Join us to explore:

  • Three areas most responsible for Employee Retention
  • Strategies for effectively leveraging each area
  • Ways to identify engaged/disengaged behaviors
  • A tool for recognizing the stages of change employees are experiencing
